While I am not personally Catholic...I stand with the Catholic Church on this...
This story is beyond scandalous.

But the reality of what happened (and is happening elsewhere) demands that we do something.
Sign our Open Letter of Support for Archbishop Leonard of Brussels!
Last week a group of half-naked radical feminists shocked the world by storming the stage at a public conference to assault the Catholic Archbishop of Brussels, soaking him with water and shouting curses in an effort to silence him for his defense of the sanctity of marriage.
To add insult to injury, these radicals also used water bottles often found at Lourdes, which are shaped in the image of Our Lady.
But Archbishop Andre-Joseph Leonard responded by bowing his head in prayer. As the attackers were removed, the Archbishop took one of the water bottles shaped in the image of the Blessed Mother and kissed it as a sign of reparation.
“Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you…because of me”(St. Matthew 5:11).
Here in America, radical homosexual activists have interrupted the Mass, desecrated the Holy Eucharist, and last year terrorized the Family Research Council with a semi-automatic weapon, shooting a security guard in the arm with the intent of killing others before he was subdued.
I urge you to sign our Open Letter of Support for Archbishop Leonard.
Our aim is to tell the humble Archbishop of Brussels that American Catholics and people of faith around the world stand with him, are praying for him– and that we are united with him in our dedication to defend the institution of marriage – no matter the costs.
While this story will no doubt sicken you, it reveals the reality of our present circumstances. And we hope it will serve as a wake-up call to Catholics and all people of good will around the world.
And let us pray that God will grant all leaders in the Church, including us, the grace needed to faithfully witness to the truths of nature, affirmed by our Church.
me thinks when the SHTF we the PEOPLE will be able to RESOLVE this problem by giving those SCUM BAGS a choice.
REPENT OR DIE, it's just that simple to me there has been ENOUGH of that SCUM running wild.
I am Catholic. This is so horrible and so offensive to God. The humble Archbishop of Brussels reacted as he should have. He imitated Christ. We, too, must have the courage to stand up and defend the institution of marriage. And we must pray for our country.
This is plain ignorant.
Thanks Twana. I haven't heard of this incident!! I am not Catholic, but this is horrible!!!! I have signed!!!!
